People’s Power Summit to Build Community Power!
Community members from throughout Wisconsin will be gathering for a two day People’s Summit in June, 2021 to build power!
MANITOWOC, Wis., April 13, 2021 – Community members from across Wisconsin and throughout the country will be gathering in Maribel, WI on June 11 and 12 for a two day People’s Power Summit event. The event will be a chance to continue building a mutually empowering network of progressive organizations and community members and will feature cultural events, local artists, workshops, and more. The public is invited to attend but individuals must register at the Facebook page. Suggested donation is $15.
Things are already bad — and they are about to get a lot worse if we don’t fight back and build our people power! The summer uprisings of 2020 have demonstrated what the people are capable of when mobilized. The people must be prepared to build diverse alliances to defend ourselves against the life-threatening and ever-intensifying economic and social misery that Wall Street and its politicians are imposing on us, including endless war, the senseless murder of Black and Brown people by the state, and almost no relief from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The People’s Power Summit is an independent initiative to fight for the rights of the poor and working people, including jobs, education, housing, food security, and healthcare. We struggle against racism, sexism, and low wages. We oppose war and U.S. interventions abroad. We support the LGBTQ community, Black Lives Matter, the Indigenous, immigrant rights, family farmers, and unions. We fight for the environment and believe Water IS Life. We are building our power!
This event will be family friendly. Social distancing and masking is required. The People’s Power Summit will take place from Friday, June 11, 2021 starting at 4 PM CDT and will conclude Saturday, June 12, 2021 at 10 PM CDT in Maribel, Wisconsin. More details about the full schedule will be forthcoming.
